LGBT Book Reading Challenge 2015

This reading challenge is hosted by nijifeels.  One of the reasons I started blogging was to discover more about books and people, LGBT is one of the things I know little about and so this is a great way of learning more about LGBT issues and how to be supportive.

So, back to the reading challenge.  'LGBT' includes the whole spectrum, not only lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and trans, but also queer, questioning, asexual etc.  The books can also be in any genre. There are also levels, these are:
YA ALLEGIANT: read 3-10 YA LGBT books 
GENRE HOPPER: read 3-10 LGBT books from any genre 
OMNIVOROUS BOOKGLUTTON: 10+ LGBT books from any genre
I am hoping to get Genre Hopper.  This is my book list so far, it will probably be added to as I find more books.  If you have any recommendations, I would be super grateful for them!!

LGBT List:
The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson
Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson - 17/7/15
